"It's too wobbly."

6
 Papa and Papa's Idea of
a Son-in-law are not to be 
tricked.

7
"Oh! We're forgetting to 
         elope!"

8
 Outraging all rules of 
romance--a daylight front-
door elopement.

9
"We'll surround them."

10
Assorted curses.

11
 "Your eyes shine like--like--er--
the scent of the jasmine in a--er--
in a lake of silver."

12
 "Eloping, eh! Well,
remember you're not
married yet!"

13
"I love you so much I feel
         rotten."

14
 "Their tickets read to Jazboro.
We stop for train orders at 
Wiseburn. You can send a wire 
from there."

15
 "You'll have time to get a minister
onto the train at Wiseburn. There's
a minister lives near the station just
around the corner from--"

16
Wiseburn.

The parsonage which domiciles
 Thomas Timothy Tubbs, D. D.

18
REV. TUBBS  -  -  FRED WARREN

19
 "Now, with that maniac out 
of the way--we two can elope 
in peace."

20
"Why, you poor fish!"

21
 Papa, having instructed his
attorney to secure an injunction
against the elopers, catches the
Limited for Jazboro.

22
"Help! Make haste!
  Extricate me!"

23
"My foot slipped and I 
     became fast."

24
"That's shocking, Tubby--a 
   man of your cloth!"

25
"Young man, I am footsore 
        and weary."

26
Jazboro.

27
Papa speeding to Jazboro.

28
He trades the mule for a 
       sweater.

29
 "Yes, Miss, your rooms are 
reserved. Is this your fiance?"

30
"What! That?"

31
"Deary me! If my flock
  should see me now!"

32
 "You're a regular fellow,
Tubby. Have an I. O. U.
on me."

33
"Send me a maid."

34
THE MAID - - WINIFRED WESTOVER

35
Tubbs full of cinders--

36
--pinched for a vag.

37
Money gone.

38
Marna finds a sympathetic 
       listener.

39
"Don't you start anything!
 I'm on my wedding trip."

40
 "They are a pair of escaped 
lunatics. Wire ahead for an 
officer and I'll pay their fare."

41
 Officers of the court, with the
injunction to stop the marriage
ceremony, start for Jazboro.

42
 "They're safe in jail on three 
counts--stopping the Limited,
abduction and lunacy."

43
"Meet me at the jail. The
 minister is already there."

44
"I'm locked in my room, but
  I'll manage to escape."

45
 "You serve the injunction 
on my daughter and we'll 
serve the others."

46
"We'll be married as soon as 
       she gets here."

47
"Now Tubby, don't you go 
          away."

48
 "To James Conroy, Marna Lewis,
John Doe, clergyman, et al, greeting.
 "WHEREAS--"

49
 "Well, I'm going back to 
the hotel. If he wants me
he can come and get me!"

50
At the back of the jail.

51
"Oh, you deceiving wretch!"

52
"Marry us by telephone."

53
"Each must have a witness."

54
 "To James Conroy, Marna Lewis,
John Doe, clergyman, et al, greeting.
 "WHEREAS--"

55
 "Shut up down there!
Don't you see I'm getting 
married?"

56
 Paying for his precious 
jewel and taking no chances 
of losing her again.
